St. George's Monastery in the Wadi Qelt Valley, Palestine State

Wadi Qelt is a valley located on the West Bank. It contains remnants of settlements, monasteries and palaces. 

One of them is the Greek Orthodox Monastery of St. George. It is named after St George of Koziba; a monk born in Cyprus 550 AD, who spent much of his life in the Judean Desert.

One from a set of four Christmas stamps, issued in 2010 by the Palestinian National Authority.
